Founding Attorney Steven Eversole counsels has dedicated his career to fighting for the rights of clients in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Our criminal law blog is an extension of those efforts, offering a unique insight into the cases we handle every day.Our posts reflect the wide breadth of the cases we handle, from misdemeanor DUI offenses to drug crimes and felony appeals.
We have reviewed how Birmingham domestic violence arrests has evolved over the years, and some of the more successful defenses in these cases, including lack of evidence, false accusations and self-defense.
We have explored the potential impact of a legislative proposal that would allow law enforcement officials in Alabama to seize property allegedly purchased with stolen money, a measure that gives rise to potential civil rights concerns. And we have discussed in-depth current and proposed Alabama gun laws, and what even simple possession of a firearm can mean for a felon. We’ve also talked about proposed marijuana legislation, and the evolution of our nation’s drug laws.
In light of the upcoming tax season, we have highlighted the rise in tax refund fraud, the potential consequences offenders might expect and what defenses we might use to help our clients avoid serious penalties. We pointed out that the IRS has launched more than 1,500 such investigations just this year alone.
We also weighed in on the revelation that in numerous jurisdictions within Alabama, the court systems are essentially turning defendants’ poverty into prison sentences, meting out out harsher and harsher punishments each time the defendant fails to pay a fine or attend an obligation requiring a hefty cost.
All of these discussions have been timely, thorough and informative.
